THE CONUNDRUM NIGHT. On Saturday night last the Concert Hall at the Heathcote Hotel was crowded, and after a few songs, glees, and dances, and an overture or two, a' la Mozart, on the Piano, by Mr. Iverson, the stage was prepared for the reception of the Judges. Mr. Hay came forward amid applause and said,-" Gentlemen, the jug which I offer as a prize to the author of the best Conundrum to-night, is, now as it were in your hands; and it is necessary that you appoint Judges, say five or any number you please. When the Judges are elected, I shall hayse completed my part of the arrangements for the evening. I have refrained from contributing a Conundrum myself, and I decline to compete with you simply because I should not feel com- fortable if I were to win it back; it might be said that it never was intended to go to the public. I do not wish it to be under stood that I consider myself capable of winning it, but I refuse to enter into competition so as to prevent what may be considere...

THE LEGEND OF THE PIG-FACED LADY. [Newspaper Article] — The McIvor Times and Rodney Advertiser — 4 September 1863
THE LEGEND OF THE PIG-FACED LADY.-There can be few that have not heard of the celebrated pig-faced lady. whose mythical story is common to several European languages, and is most generally related in the following manner: A newly married lady of rank and fashion, being annoyed by the importunities of a wretched beggar-woman, accompanied by a dirty, squalling child, exclaimed . "Take away your nas-.v pig, I shall not give you anything !" Whereupon, the enraged beggar, with a bitter imprecation, re torted: "May your own child, when it S is born, be more 1;ke a pig thanmine !" And so, shortly afterwards, the lady gave S birth to agirl, perfectly, indeed beautifully, formed in every respect, save that its face, some say the whole head, exactly re sembled that of a pig. This strange child thrived apace, and grew to be a woman, giving the unhappy parents great : trouble and affliction-not by its disgust ing features alone, but by its hoggish manners in general. much easier to be magined t...
ANIMAL FOOD FOR CONDITIONING HORSES. [Newspaper Article] — The McIvor Times and Rodney Advertiser — 4 September 1863
ANIMAL FOOD FOR CONDITrINING HonsEs.--ir. H. Forrester Leighton, of her Majesty's Indian army, writes in the SField' as follows :-"I shall feel obliged by your insertirng the following receipt for putting horses into condition. I have found it invaluable in India, where I used it for giving horses condition and wind at the same time. It never affected them either in training for turf or as hunters;. on the'contrary it enables them to endure fatigue.. A sheep's-head is taken an'i boiled-till almost in a gelaitinous state and well mixed ivith bran, sufficient for forming into balls. Foi, the first two or three days the horse must be fed by working the inixture. with the fingers between the ;,rinders. On the thid or forth day, he will readily eat it himself. One heal per per day, is sufficient allowi.nce, taking away one-half of the horse's corn. For corroberation of the etfficacy of the receipt, I beg to refer to H. H. Kennedy, Esq., of Clunny Ilouse, Perthshire. He has tried the rece...

No Title [Newspaper Article] — The McIvor Times and Rodney Advertiser — 4 September 1863
W'T are indebted to the Age of Friday, 28th instant, for a condenced report of the evi dence taken before the Mining Commission, which was created for the purpose of furnishing an excuse for rewarding Mr. Humphray for assisting to sell the people of Ballarat. We can believe our Melbourne contemporary that -the task of going over the document was anything but a light one. If the evidence is intended as advice to the Minister of Mines and Members of the Legislature, it is about as useful as that tendered to the old man with the donkey, and if acted upon, must produce a similar result. We must give every one of the parties examined credit for having said what Sthey thought, but that does not render the evidence more reliable. A great number consider the Mining Boards useless, and are in favor of codifying the mining laws, so as to make one general law to suit the whole of the Colony. It is the opinion of a large majority that the gold should not be sold with the land, and that a Bill f...
(To the Editor of the McIvor Times.) [Newspaper Article] — The McIvor Times and Rodney Advertiser — 4 September 1863
(To the Editor of the Ilclvor Times.) Sin;-Some returned fugitive, I sus pect, in a letter signed "Advancement," which appeared in the last number of the \Tewus, sadly hbwails the apathy shown by our citizens with regard to prospecting for gold. Now, ifanybody complain of others being devoid of publio spirit, he himself ought atleast, I think, to be able to ren der a pretty satistactory account of his own conduct; no, but it is generally othir wise, and I have known the most notorious "fossickers" to inveigh mst loudly against " Shepherding," .or shirking the the work of testing the ground. As " Advancement" would not seem to be putting his own shoulders to the wheel; to be only scribbling, instead of furnishing any material aid in despatching a piros pecting party; I am reluctantly forced to the conclusion that he must belong to that sharp class of "Catohpennies," .with which this fine colony so numerously abounds ; that he would merely wish. to avail himself of opportunities. crea...
